Using Emotions Appropriately

In this evening’s group I got annoyed and challenged Simran for disrespecting George by not being in the room when he was reading his agenda item. One challenge and I’m alive. I noticed how much more solid, loud and assertive my voice is. The learning points for me were:

  • In every interaction there is always a choice how to react
  • Anger can be used constructively when expressed appropriately

I recall the conversation with Karaj some months back when he said that when I use my emotions appropriately I will be effective. I am beginning to see what he means.
